Wishing everybody a happy Xmas (whatever your faith or none) and a good New Year

I haven't replied to many of the xmas wishes posts as it would have doubled the time I spend on here anyway - I've been saving them up to reply here!

People have come and people have gone - but the forum and the community are still here. Long may that last!

Happy Xmas and "Ein guten rutsch ins 2018!" (the new year greating here: a good slide into the new year)

Greetings from a very sunny and white Christmas Day at my home in Italy - with temperatures down here in the valley of -10C overnight while on the mountains at 2000m it was/is +5C and above!

  • I echo everything everyone else has said. Very grateful thanks to you for all your help and wisdom and continued sharing of your own experience with this wretched disease. You cannot know how incredibly helpful you are to those of us plodding along wondering so often “ what on earth is going on with me?”. The same is so true with Dorset Lady. We are so lucky to have you both to help us struggle through our dilemmas. All very good wishes to you both for a healthy 2018.

  • I've had the lovely Christmas ham and accoutrements with my folks today, but am also looking forward to trying the raclette you talked about. I have found a restaurant here in New Orleans via google, called The Melting Pot, that has quite a similar fare. Can't wait to try it! Thank you for all your advice. Have a blessed New Year!

  • The Melting Pot is mainly fondue isn't it? I love that too. The lovely thing about both is that you sit around a table together and help yourself and chat while you are doing it. And you can eat as much or as little as you like.

  • A happy Christmas and peaceful, healthy New Year to you too. Thank you for giving up an incredible amount of time to serve tirelessly on this forum . You give such a lot of helpful advice and encouragement, even when times have been really tough for you. Thank you, doesn't really sum it up because it's really more than that and is really inadequate to the amount of help you give. Best wishes for 2018. Jackie x

  • Thanks for that PMR Pro and to you too. Thanks also for your help always

  • A day late...surprised that I didn't 'log in' yesterday.Out celebrating. Nevertheless, the wishes are warm. May 2018 be good, happy and filled with much hope, for you and David. You are 1 of a kind. Fount of knowledge. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the help on my GCA journey.
